Mach3 Software Came With CNC Kit
« on: December 07, 2012, 10:51:30 PM »
Hello all!  I have wanted to build a CNC machine for years and am finally getting around to it.  I have assembled the deck and gantry similar to the builds at www.buildyourcnc.com.  I ordered a kit of Nema stepper motors, a control board, and a power supply from an overseas supplier.  In the box was Mach3, I was surprised.  Do some suppliers have distribution licenses for the software?

Anyhow, looking forward to lots of CNC projects as this machine comes together.

Hi Zig,

The Mach3 you have is probably the software only.  The software is freely down loadable from the Mach3 support site. In order to remove the limitation of Mach3 only processing 500 lines of G-code, you need to purchase a licence file.

The disk you have may the Mach3 program only, or it may also include the licence file if it was bundled with the kit.

Yes, Suppliers such as myself can sell Mach3 licence files.
